Was William T Riker sterile?

For a man that jumped at the opportunity to get in bed with females from all across the UFP it sure seems odd that none of his conquests showed up with an armada demanding child support.

Some form of contraception seems plausible.

After that transporter accident on Nervala IV, Thomas Riker had all the swimmers.

Riker probably got hold of Kirk´s personal diary and found a few pointers in there

Wasn't it strongly hinted that the woman in that episode with the Irish settlers used him to add variety to their gene pool ?

Riker's probably memorized which aliens can reproduce with humans and which can't.

Re: Was William T Riker sterile?

From DS9's Dogs of War

SISKO I didn't mean... it's just... a baby! You and me... wow. I hadn't even... a baby?
KASIDY Surprise.
SISKO Surprise is right -- how did... ?
KASIDY I think somebody forgot to get their injection last month...
SISKO (realizing) And Julian even reminded me. But with everything that's been going on..

So yeah, apparently you can get a monthly birth control hypo. Gotta imagine that conversation between Bashir and Sisko though.

Or, you, know, contraceptives.

Rumor has it he impregnated several chairs throughout the Federation.

Imagine the conversations between Riker and Crusher...which would have been especially awkward after "The Host"....

Forget that. I'm more interested to hear the conversation between McCoy and Kirk after the latter's numerous female adventures. After all, we know Kirk successfully impregnated at least two women: what about the women we never saw on TV (or film)?

He loved to tease Data's console, that's for sure.

I'm amazed he didn't take a moment to say goodbye after the Enterprise-D crashed on Veridian III. In any event, I can't think of his saying, "I always thought I'd get a crack at this chair someday," without breaking into a grin.
